Pours a nice golden hue with a nice 2finger that laces beautifully. I get a nice earthy maltiness from the nose blended nicely with fresh hops. This has a wonderful medium mouthfeel with nice carbonation that highlights some nice fresh earthy Bavarian hops, deep toasted malts, grain, bread, biscuit, a creaminess near the end that leaves a great malty sweetness in the aftertaste.
A great american brew that is widely available. Less dry than the boston ale, and more hops that seems to blend well.

Large fluffy head with good lacing. The head sticks around for a long time. Beautiful light copper colored beer. Very clear. Moderate carbonation with large bubbles.
Hops are dominant. Some malt sweetness in the background.
Tastes like it smells, but with a slightly harsh bitterness to the finish. There is just something about the flavor profile that I don't like. It is too harsh for the style. It tastes like the ingredients are good quality. It just comes across as unpleasantly harsh on the finish.
Medium bodied. Good mouthfeel, but that weird lingering harshness detracts from the experience.
This is a pretty good beer that for some reason just doesn't sit right with my palate.
